Horror Channel will be broadcasting eight premieres during the month of May, including ‘The Vatican Tapes’ as the UK TV premiere. The dynamic, unusual and thrilling exorcism shocker by ‘Crank’ director Mark Neveldine, will hit the airwaves on Friday 13th of May at 9:00pm. While you have your calendars out to mark the date, come on inside for the full May line-up of the terrific horrific month ahead full of modern and classic chills and screams.
Screened at FrightFest Halloween 2015, the ‘Vatican Tapes’ centers around the battle to save a young girl’s soul after she expresses increasingly erratic and strange behaviour. It soon becomes clear that Angela (Olivia Taylor Dudley) has been taken over by an ancient satanic force and that she must be quickly purged of evil. But what nobody knows is the spiritual crusade is not just for Angela but for the entire world as humanity knows it. Also starring are Michael Peña, Dougray Scott, Djimon Hounsou and Peter Andersson
Receiving their first appearances on the Horror Channel are the grotesque Irish comedy horror ‘Stitches’ starring Ross Noble, and Tom Shankland’s chilling and taboo-shattering ‘The Children’, plus the UK TV premiere of Ian Clark’s stark and scary ‘The Facility’. Still wanting more? Read on.
